New That didn't take long.
But, it will educate folks on the meaning of net neutrality.

It's one thing to cap data (to some number of GB) at unconstrained rates, it's another to throttle data rates based on the data source.

“There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.”

-- Isaac Asimov
New Why is google so fast?
Because in every datacenter that of size that serves as an ISP has a local google machine that is put there and paid for by google. Netflix wants the same service for free. Its called the last mile advantage. What killed local phone companies was the Feds mandating that independent long distance carriers had an equal right at the same price to ride that last mile. That time will come for last mile internet providers such as cable and telco once the appropriate palms get greased in washington

New Not up to the service providers.
A user should get X amount of bandwidth, regardless of how they wish to use it. If an ISP has an issue with how that bandwidth is used they can throttle it all equally, not based on the content.

That Google has a way around this is immaterial. YTF should an ISP care what a user is using their bandwidth for?

Throttling by content is just a way for an ISP to limit bandwidth without actually telling their customers that they're limiting bandwidth. If they want to start picking and choosing then they can deal with losing common carrier status and as a result start being responsible for what is going down their lines.

Welcome to Rivendell, Mr. Anderson.
New Pretty much my POV on that
they want the protection of being a common carrier, and want to charge both ends of the transaction. Shorter: they want to have their cake and eat it too.

Telecom in North America sucks.
New I had the cake line in my post and deleted it :-)
Wanting to charge both ends is another succinct way of putting it.

Welcome to Rivendell, Mr. Anderson.
New Well said, both of you.
New Does Verizon really want to upset AWS?
Amazon won't take that lying down.
